SORT BY Relevancy
Very few artists successfully cross back and forth from jazz to classical and back again: Wynton Marsalis, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and Arturo Sandoval come to mind. But now add to the list Dallas vocalist Damon K. Clark. Already acclaimed for his unusual sensitivity, versatility and virtuosity, Clark is as much at home with Thelonius Monk’s “’Round Midnight” as he is with Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma.” The mellifluous tenor minimizes the aesthetic distance between the classical and jazz worlds.
Although Clark has performed in Europe, all over the United States, and in many venues in Dallas, including the Winspear Opera House, he considers Oak Cliff’s Kessler Theater to be his artistic home. In fact, his debut CD is entitled, Damon K. Clark Live at the Kessler Volume I. The CD includes a stellar cast supporting musicians including Caleb McCampbell, Asher Barreras, Justin Heaverin and Neeki Bey.
While his tessitura and timbre could be described as Bobby McFerrin-esque, his approach to the material is unique. Clark’s scatting in particular exhibits a classical precision, while hinting at his affection for Ella Fitzgerald’s and Mel Tormé’s improvisational skills. Clark’s take on the Gershwins’ “They All Laughed” is a highlight, showcasing his astonishing range, playful scatting, melismatic mastery and elastic phrasing.
Dr Vernon Johnson Mwaanga is one of Zambia's renown diplomats and politicians, in October 1964 he became the nation's first diplomat as deputy high commisioner to London. Dr Mwaanga’s career spans over a number of decades holding several positions ranging from cabinet minister, diplomat, newspaper Editor in Chief, and national intelligence chief. He also had a few years in the business community as chairman of the Zambian subsidiary of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and the Zambia Industrial and Commercial Association (ZINCOM). Dr Mwaanga was a founding member of the Movement for Multi Party Democracy, after the party's victory in 1991 elections he served as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1991 to 1994. He was minister of Information from 1999 to 2002, after the 2006 elections he was reinstated as Minister of Information until his resignation in 2002.
Dr Mwaanga joins us to discuss and analyze the current political situation in the nation in light of the impending presidential election after the death of Zambia's fifth president Mr Micheal Chilufya Sata on January 20, 2015. What is the way forward for the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) of which he was founding member which has been embattled with divided leadership over a presidential candidate? He was recently confered with an honorary doctorate degree by the Copper Belt University and currently working as a political & business consultant.

A Genealogical Quest in the Triracial South
What began as genealogical research into the author's ancestry soon grew into a fascinating tale with lessons for us all. Among his ancestors, Johnson uncovered: unpunished murderers, infidelities that produced stronger families than formal marriages, entire units of North Carolinians who fought and died to preserve the Union in the Civil War. The tale holds enough plot twists for a half-dozen novels.
But most of all, it reveals in a personal way what molecular anthropologists have been trying to explain all along. The fact is that we are all of multiple ancestries. Inhabitants of the New World are a genetic mix of three great populations, Native Americans, European colonists, and African slaves. Nowhere is this more vivid than in Pell Mellers, the story of one man's search for his tangled roots.
"In Paul Johnson's engaging journey into his roots in Bertie County, North Carolina, he discovers an intriguing family of pocosin dwellers who personify the South's multiracial heritage and its political minorities, including Unionists and the original Buffalo Soldiers. Pell Mellers is a solid contribution to the history of the "other South" that complements the well-traveled mainstream, illustrating our rich and textured past." -- Lindley S. Butler, author of Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast..Read full description of episode here!
